There’s this incredibly corny Linkin Park music video where the parched ground reacts to every magical step that Mike Shinoda takes with plants that spring up in their place.

In a project commissioned by the China Environmental Protection Foundation to walk more and drive less, DDB China’s Jody Xiong came up with the idea of sprawling a 12.6m x 7m canvas of a leafless tree across a pedestrian crossing.
